Travel Information Home Program Fairmont Orchid Hotel Volcano Field Trip Big Island Travel Information Contact Us TRAVEL INFORMATION AIR TRAVEL Kona Airport: The Keahole-Kona International Airport (code KOA) has direct flights to, and from, many mainland destinations as well as Japan. Direct flights are also available to the islands of Maui and Kauai, but inter-island transfers to Kona, through Honolulu, are still required and are scheduled less frequently from these islands. Inter- Island Airlines: Two inter-island airlines (Aloha Airlines and Hawaiian Airlines) provide connecting flights to the Big Island from Honolulu. If your initial destination point is Honolulu, or any island other than the Island of Hawai'i, please remember to make an additional reservation for a connecting flight on one of the inter-island carriers. Inter-island seats fill up quickly. Make your reservations early. Please do not wait until you arrive in Honolulu to secure the inter-island portion of your trip to the Big Island. Free transportation via the Wiki-Wiki Shuttle Bus is available between the main and inter- island terminal at the Honolulu airport. It is important to leave a minimum of two hours between your arrival in Honolulu and your departure for Kona to accommodate added security measures and to transfer to the inter-island terminal. The FAIRMONT ORCHID, at Mauna Lani is a 40 minute drive from the Keahole- Kona International Airport. The hotel does NOT have its own shuttle bus transportation.
